Ok last night was ridiculous. I spent almost all night jerking around involuntarily, the hardest and longest i've jerked around ever so far. I've been diagnosed with temporal lobe epilepsy, simple partials and complex partials that can generalize, and now these lower body jerks are new in the past 3 months and my doctor has not definitively diagnosed them. Namakova (spelling? sorry if I got that wrong) suggested they were mycolonic seizures, which really seems to fit. Brain MRI was normal, but I had an MRI months ago of lower spine which showed four vertebrae knocked backwards out of position from a rear hit car accident. Can that cause spinal myclonus? I'm about to search for another doctor for a second opinion, if I don't start sleeping I'm going to do myself in. Not only am I not sleeping all night it's like I'm doing aerobics all night. That's my story, any help appreciated.
